HI Christine, I have not launched my blog on the new websitebuilder yet so, unless someone has already and can give you the answer, the homestead tech guys will be back in here Monday morning and I am sure they will be able to give you and answer.

That is something I have sent to the development team as an add request. Unfortunately at this time, the comments can't be managed.

An update and date by which we will have this would be appreciated.  Does this also include requiring an email and name from those who post comments? The is really unacceptable in this day and age, given the vulnerabilities that we are left open to, and the constant management of post that is now required. How do we delete comments, as necessary, if there is no management system around this?

Christine9434, can not give you a when or an if on this. It is a new feature request that will be looked at by the developers, but has to be approved, prioritized, coded, tested and finally released. I do not know what stage it is currently in, but I shall try to find out.

Drew, I already have a blog on my sitebuilder+  website, If I keep that page when launching my new websitebuilder website, can I link to the old blog?

I would think we could find a way. You would not be able to delete the old site. We could make a subdomain that points to the sitename.homestead.com/blog.html page. When linking to the blog, it would display something like blog.domainname.com/blog.html.
